About Program

SHE-CAN seeks talented young women leaders from Cambodia, Liberia, and Guatemala who have few opportunities but incredible potential and passion for change.

As a SHE-CAN scholar, you will be supported in winning a full-ride scholarship to a top U.S. college. Through access to a world-class college education, mentorship, and leadership training in the U.S., we will provide you with the tools and support needed to return and make change in your home country.

Eligibility

Ambitious young women aged 17-20 from low opportunity backgrounds who have achieved academic excellence and demonstrated leadership skills through activities or service in their community. Apply for SHE-CAN program if you are:

  1. A woman between the ages of 17-20

  7. No more than two years university experience in home country
  8. Already a leader in your school or community
  9. A strong English speaker: Your ability to speak and write in English is critical because all U.S. universities require a high score on the TOEFL or IELTS language exam. Therefore, if your English is not strong, we recommend that you spend a year studying and apply next year
  10. Academically strong: Consistently ranked high in your class with strong grades and a strong score on National Exam or WAEC/WASSCE

Scholarship Benefits

SHE-CAN aims to support low-income young women who would not otherwise have the opportunity to study in the U.S. and get the tools needed to return home and step into leadership roles in their countries. Funding for SHE-CAN scholars is provided by:

  1. College-Funded Scholarship: Every scholar applies for and is awarded a full-ride scholarship from a U.S. college, which pays for the cost of tuition, a place to live, and meals while in school.
  2. SHE-CAN: The organization funds test preparation classes and costs not covered by your scholarship that your family can’t afford, including passport and visa fees, flight (one to U.S. and one home), textbooks, health insurance, etc.
  3. Scholar & Family: Scholars fund travel to and from test preparation classes in your country’s capital city. When you arrive in the U.S., you are expected to work on campus to fund your personal expenses (toothpaste, shampoo, etc.). While SHE-CAN funds your health insurance, the organization is unable to fund medical expenses outside of what the insurance covers, including dental and vision expenses.
